Elizabeth George has long been a favorite source of encouragement and wisdom for women who hunger to know how God desires for them to live. In her newest release, Elizabeth asks, “Where better can we learn about right character and conduct than Jesus Himself?”

There is much we can learn from this perfect life example: His generosity in caring for the needs of others, the abundance of His kindness and forgiveness even to His enemies, His persistence in watching over His own, and His willingness to give His all even though He had nothing.

Every woman who desires to…

  • skillfully make the most of limited time
  • give freely without expecting anything in return
  • achieve all things in God’s strength and not her own
  • let her light shine and glorify God

…will find a treasure trove of truths and applications that enable her to follow well in the footsteps of Jesus.

Operation Timothy is an investigative Bible study to make disciples just as Jesus commanded in Matthew 28:19 “go into all the world and make disciples”. The name Operation Timothy comes from the relationship the Apostle Paul had with a young man named Timothy. It is more than a curriculum or set of lessons, so just as Paul took Timothy “under his wing” and invested his life into him while teaching him spiritual truths, so we help others grow spiritually within the context of relationship. We call this relationship life-on-life.
 
There are 3 books in the Operation Timothy series. Each book builds concept upon concept, and will take the disciple deeper and deeper into the truths of Scripture. This life-on-life relationship was lived out in practical daily accountability, teaching of the scriptures and simply “doing life together.” Paul’s investment into Timothy’s life helped Timothy to grow into a mature believer who went on to be a leader and pastor in the first century church.
